Excellent Paul Krugman Article
Paul Krugman’s opinion piece today in the New York Times is terrific. He’s found a topical metaphor – a mobster’s extortion racket – the is a perfect explanation of Republican tactics. From the opening line – “Nice middle class you got here,” said Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader. “It would be a shame if something happened to it.” – the essay grabs the reader and lays out, in the clearest possible terms, precisely what the Republican plan for America and American taxpayers really is.
WC’s tips his hat to Professor Krugman for an exceptionally lucid explanation. And WC urges his readers to pass the link along to their friends.
